This sounds very similar to a problem I had with my f100.
I ran battery tester (name?) and if i'd just nudge the switch there would be a change in the battery metre reading from ~100% to ~80 or something.
In the end I opened it up reheated the solder and sprayed some wd40 into the power...
I found his video informative. Not overtly mean spirited, he's not even that scathing on the obviously defective/broken shoulder button - something that would be considered an instant-warranty-return for most people on any other product in Pandora's price range.
The trouble is, people who...
The glut of cheap Chinese Android handhelds hasn't really produced "one device to rule them all". Yet.
I bought a YDPG16 a while back and first impressions were the hardware is pretty good but the stock rom was mostly worthless; full of Chinese cruft and the "game manager" is just annoying...

I still have my trusty f100.
In many ways its still better than my Caanoo and Yinlips ydpg16.
The gp2x community had a real buzz with devs impressing us all by squeezing every bit of performance out of those 240-300 MHz.
Doom will run under ginge (gp2x compatibility layer).
Edit: for some reason I read this as applying to Caanoo, disregard if not.
I read your build summary. Nice work!
Preaching to the choir but re: pots, iirc there are logarithmic and linear pots.
The linear ones increase resistance proportional to the rotation.
The log ones have a log relationship ie 10% turn =...
I got battery cycling and swapping down to a fine art with the F100 so it wasn't a big problem for me.
Maybe it helps that my first handheld was and Atari Lynx which trained me to expect unholy battery consumption as a fact of life. 6xAA's drained in <3 hours. :(
@ OP, you should try downgrading the firmware, 4.0.0 isnt that much use on a f100. Dig through some old threads here to read up on howto.
I use fw 2.1.1 with Notaz's excellent SDHC firmware patch:
